It's About Time

Wow, I can't believe it's been so long since we last updated. I've been meaning to for awhile, but it seemed like things just kept coming up, like the two weeks in January, everyone in our little family got a really bad flu bug, which I wouldn't wish on anyone! Also, someone, who wishes not to be named (but it wasn't me), lost our camera card with all of our Christmas pictures on it, and me being the kinda neurotic person I am, can't blog out of order, so we've been trying to find the card so we can post. We found our small card with the last couple days of our vacation on it, so I guess it'll do, on to the update, and I'll try to make it quick and get onto the pictures.
Christmas was great, all because we were able to go back home to Utah for three weeks! It was so great to see all of our family and friends and the mountains again : ) Christmas was great, we had Christmas Eve dinner with my family, and then we slept at Steve's parent's house, which was fun because 7 of the 8 kids in his family slept over! It was crazy but so much fun, especially with all the grandkids! We also had pictures taken of all the Rogers grandkids together, plus family pictures, which were freezing, but fun. We were also able to go skiing and after the first bumpy run it was a lot of fun and a beautiful day! One of the most exciting things that happened while we were there, was that my sister Amber and her husband and kids were able to be sealed in the temple. It was such an amazing experience, especially seeing Ryleigh and Braydon walk into the sealing room and seeing them kneel all together around the altar. I'm so happy for them and love them so much! Some other fun things that we did was go to the aquarium, which the kids absolutely loved, went sledding and played in the snow, (while we were there, it snowed more than I think it had since we moved there), and went to the Body Exhibit that was in Sa
lt Lake (so interesting! but I'm into that kind of stuff). Overall, we had the best time, and we owe it all to our families! We love you guys!
Since we've been home, we all got sick, Steve started school and entered a client-counseling competition at school with our friend James, (the same partner from his other competition), and they WON Again!! So exciting! So they were able to go to Milwaukee and compete in Regionals, and they're automatically going to Regionals next year and are in charge of the competition at the UofI next year. So that left a weekend where I was all by myself with the kids, which was filled with lots of playdates and dinners with friends, and one eventful day at church with Monica (James' wife) and their girls! Valentines Day was so fun, we ate at this great resteraunt called Bacaro, and it was delicious! And we were able to go do some shopping without having to spend twenty minutes getting kids in and out and pushing an incredibly huge stroller around! It was heaven!

On to the kid-os: They're both walking! They're still both a little unsteady, but Audrey can take about ten or so steps, while Auston can take about 4! It's so exciting, but I'm a little worried about what this may bring! But no matter what, it'll be fun (I hope). They're also jabbering away, with Audrey being a LOT more vocal than Auston, but that's to be expected since she's a girl! They are both so funny, and so fun to watch! They both LOVE to dance, especially Audrey, the minute they hear music, they're bouncing all over! They fight big, but love big, which makes all the fighting bearable! Funny story: They were fighting over these two stuffed animals, Auston kept taking them from Audrey, and when she finally took them from him for the fourth time, she just started hitting him with them over and over! Auston just started laughing and rolled onto her lap while she was hitting him, but then she started laughing and rolled over on him! Steve and I were laughing so hard, I know I know, we probably should have disciplined, but it was just too funny! Anyway, there's an update on us, sorry so long! Enjoy the pics and vidoes!
Lovin' thier spaghetti!
Audrey loved her tutu that her Aunt Cara made for her!



Auston's first haircut, he looks so old!

They weren't afraid to touch anything!

Audrey loved my parents' sheep, Lady

This video is of Audrey and Auston in the bath, and Audrey was telling a big story. She tells stories like this all the time, and it's too funny!

Posting

Well . . . As you may or may not have been able to see, we have been slacking in or blog updating duties. Many of our, or should I say Auston and Audrey's, faithful fans are enraged because of the lack of updates since Christmas. Rest assured we still think about our blog and plan to update sometime, hopefully soon. Thank you for your patience and we are sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused you.
